Tuesday Treasure: Firefighter turned jeweler

by Molly Kimball, elephantbeads

This week’s Tuesday Treasure brings us sleek, unique jewelry designs. Andrea, owner of AssortedAdornments on Etsy, left her career as a firefighter to care for her daughter, who needed a life-saving liver transplant. While her shop is relatively new, it already has the hallmarks of a successful Etsy shop: Clean, appealing photographs, a compelling back-story, and unusual jewelry that makes you take notice – not easy in Etsy’s crowded jewelry marketplace. Andrea combines up-cycled vintage components with contemporary elements and, in many of her pieces, creative wire-wrapping.

You can find Andrea on Pinterest (asstdadornments) or Twitter (asstdadornments) – and she might even give you a discount code if you look her up there.

Below are three of the designs that struck our fancy – but take a look through her shop and you’ll find that no two pieces are alike. Each item is a new discovery!
